haha
Just half an hour ago I was out with my little breese at my school field just ploding about the sky when out of no-where a buzzard came and latched on the the tail plane of my breese!
The buzzard carried it a few hundred feet then Droped it where I was able to recover and land safley.
Slady no video but im sure it would of made you laugh

OMG - Pity there was no video, that would have been worth £200 on "you've been framed" for sure!

Yes, amazing aren't they. We've had a few run ins with buzzards and once with a red kite. Only camera we had for that was a phone so they are little more than grainy dots in the sky
